Thank you for visiting this website (the “Site”). The Site is offered by Endless Studios LLC (“we” or “us”). Through this Site, we aim to support individuals who want to make games and learn to make games. Our goal is to provide you with an enjoyable experience that complies with various privacy guidelines such as the United States Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and the European Union General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR).
Though you should read this document in its entirety, there are a few points regarding privacy that we want to emphasize:
We do not collect more information from our users than is reasonably necessary to provide services and Site functionality that the users have chosen to use;
Though we do collect a limited amount of information about you, we generally do not collect enough personal data through the Site to allow us to identify specific persons in the real world;
We do not use or share personal data for advertising purposes, including not using personal data to engage in so-called “behavioral advertising”;
At your request, we will provide you with a copy of the information we have about you, correct any errors in that information or remove it from our systems.
Emails at registration: During account registration, we ask for, collect and store an email address for each user. If a user is below the legal age of majority in their place of residence, this must be the email address of the user’s parent or legal guardian. This address is only ever used for the following purposes:
To send an account confirmation email to the address at the time of registration;
To send you notifications in the service (if you choose to opt in to email notifications for certain types of activities in the service);
To send you updates on the projects and the service (if you choose to opt in to such updates);
During the password recovery process.
Support requests: You may have the option of providing us with an email address in the event you initiate a support request. If you provide us with an email address in this situation, we will only use it to contact you with regard to your support request and will remove it from our system at your request.
Information you provide as you participate in projects: You may choose to engage with projects, for example by taking on tasks and submitting materials when you complete them. These materials should relate to the project in question, and are not expected or required to contain any personal information. That being said, if you choose to include personal information in your submission, you should have no expectation of privacy.
Social and community features: The platform includes various social and community features, for example ways to receive feedback from project leads, collaborators and mentors as you use the service and learn. These materials should relate to your project development and learning, and are not expected or required to contain any personal information. That being said, if you choose to include personal information in your submission, you should have no expectation of privacy.
When you visit the Site, our automated software and tools may collect certain information for the purposes of supporting our internal operations and improving the Site, as described below, for example crash logs; IP address; device capabilities; geolocation information (at the country/territory/state/city level); and information about what parts of the Site you have accessed, how much time was spent on each page, etc.).
In common with many websites, the Site places small files known as “cookies” on users’ machines. Cookies provide a convenient experience for our users, keeping track of user identities as they navigate to different parts of a website.
We may allow third parties to place and read their own cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to collect information
For the best experience, we recommend that you allow your web browser to accept cookies from the Site. It is possible to configure your web browser not to accept cookies, but this may cause some features of the Site not to work properly.
We use non-personal, anonymized and aggregated data to support our internal operations, for example improving the quality and design of the Site; and to create new features and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing user preferences and trends.
Unless you request that we remove it, we store the information we collect indefinitely.
As part of our regular operations, we may securely share information with organizations or individuals providing services or acting on our behalf, such as companies providing technology services. When we engage with a vendor in this way, we take steps to ensure that the vendor treats your personal information in a manner consistent with our own privacy practices.
Outside of these circumstances, we never share your personal data with third parties. This includes not sharing your personal data with third parties for commercial or advertising purposes like engaging in so-called “behavioral advertising.”
Occasionally, we may share non-personal, anonymized or aggregate data with third parties such as sponsors or academic researchers. In these circumstances, we only share data in ways that do not result in the third parties obtaining our users’ personal data.
As a convenience to our users, we may provide access or links to, or integrations with, third-party sites, services and content through the Site, such as to social networks or video hosting platforms. Those third-party services may be able to collect information about you, including information about your activity on the Site, and they may notify your connections about your use of the Site, in accordance with their own privacy policies and the third-party features you use.
It is our policy to protect you from having your privacy violated through abuse of the legal system, whether by individuals, entities or government, and to contest claims that we believe to be invalid under applicable law. However, it is also our policy to cooperate with lawful demands. Accordingly, we reserve the right to disclose any information about you to government, law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary to satisfy or comply with any applicable law, regulation or legal process or to respond to lawful requests, including subpoenas, warrants or court orders.
We use reasonable measures to protect the information that we collect from or about you (including your personal information) from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. This includes allowing you to access the Site via a secure https connection and the encryption of site data at rest. Please be aware, however, that no method of transmitting information over the Internet or storing information is completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information.
You may obtain a complete record of any personal data we have about you by submitting a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. If, upon your review, you determine that your personal data is incorrect or incomplete, you may notify us of the issue at email@example.com and we will correct the errant data.
You may withdraw your consent to provide us with any personal data you have previously consented to provide us with and request that it be removed from our system by submitting a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. At the time you make the deletion request, you may also obtain a copy of your personal data by so indicating along with the deletion request. If you make a deletion request, we will remove the personal data from our live system and disable your user account. Please note that due to technical, legal and regulatory requirements, your personal data may persist in archives and backups even after we have removed it from the live system.
In the event of a data breach in which we have reason to believe that personal data was compromised in a manner that could harm our users, we will notify the affected users promptly once we become aware of the breach, generally within 72 hours. This will include notification to the affected users via email and/or in-Site messaging where available. These notifications will describe the nature and scope of the breach; the risks and potential consequences of the breach; the steps we are taking to address the breach and mitigate its adverse effects on our users; and how users can obtain more information.
Depending on your location, you may have a right to file a complaint with a government or other regulatory agency concerning our privacy practices or the handling of data about you.
